Roger Eno is preparing to come to Portugal to present, at Misty Fest, The Turning Year, an album that has just been released on Deutsche Grammophon.
The British pianist and composer debuted on the prestigious German label in 2020 with the release of Mixing Colours. This was the first album he recorded as a duo with his brother, fellow composer and producer Brian Eno, one of the most revered figures in the music world.
The Turning Year accentuates the more pastoral side of Roger Eno’s compositions, showing off his particular talent as a melodist. Some of the pieces also feature a string quartet, Scoring Berlin, which gives his music an even more magical dimension. And it will be this magic that Roger will bring to Portugal for a performance at Misty Fest. Throughout the years, the quality of his compositions has earned him the attention of renowned directors such as David Lynch, who used music Roger and Brian created together for the soundtrack of Dune. Roger’s pieces have also been used to great effect in films like 9 1/2 Weeks or Trainspotting. Live, Roger Eno usually makes his very atmospheric music be accompanied by projections and installations that he designs himself and that make the experience of his concerts – which have taken place in venues such as the renowned Tate Britain – truly immersive.
